July Newsletter

We are at the beginning of our summer challenge groups so make sure you let us know if you're ready to start working on your fitness! There are three new exciting products coming out this month to help us get healthy!  We have Cize, the Fixate cookbook, and a new line of performance supplements! I know you'll want to get your hands on these ASAP!  We sure do!

Have you tried the new Cize workout available on Beachbody on Demand? It's really fun and the whole program comes out this month! July 20th you can get into great shape at home with Shaun T's newest, intense dance fitness program. You'll have so much fun challenging yourself to master the dance choreography during this 4 week program that you won't even realize you are getting a great cardio workout. CIZE truly is "The end of exercize."

In each routine, Shaun breaks down challenging moves step-by-step, and builds them into a full dance sequence in just 35-40 minutes. So, while you are mastering the dance moves, you'll also be burning fat and calories.

Watch this video to learn more about CIZE:

Get your pots, pans, and kitchen essentials ready, because we're debuting Autumn Calabrese's 21 Day Fix-based cookbook, FIXATE, on July 14th! This all-new cookbook takes Autumn's simple color-coded container portion control system and applies it to 101 of her favorite family recipes.

Each FIXATE recipe lists color-coded container equivalents and nutrition facts. Plus, FIXATE includes Paleo, gluten-free, vegan, and vegetarian recipes along with Autumn's personal tips for preparing meals quickly, and stocking your kitchen with absolute must-haves.

We are excited about the new Beachbody Performance Line being all natural. It's so hard to find good supplements that don't have anything artificial in them! 

Designed by Harvard-trained scientists and based on cutting-edge sports science, exercise physiology, and nutrition research, Beachbody Performance contains scientifically proven ergogenic (performance enhancing) ingredients and plant-based nutrients to help maximize exercise performance and recovery safely, effectively, and naturally. No artificial colors, flavors, sweeteners, or preservatives. Order Beachbody Performance individually by formula, or all together in a stack.

The system consists of five powder drinks that are formulated with key ingredients scientifically shown to be effective: 
  1. Beachbody Energize Pre-Workout: Improves intense exercise performance, increases energy and endurance, and sharpens focus and reaction time. 
  2. Beachbody Hydrate During-Workout: Supports hydration during exercise, replaces electrolytes lost during exercise, fuels working muscles, and improves endurance. 
  3. Beachbody Recover Post-Workout: Speeds muscle recovery, promotes lean muscle synthesis, combats exercise-induced muscle soreness, and improves muscle strength recovery. 
  4. Beachbody Recharge Nighttime: Supports overnight muscle recovery, improves overnight adaptation to exercise, promotes lean muscle synthesis, and reduces muscle breakdown. 
  5. Beachbody Creatine: This add-on has no flavor and mixes well with the Recover Post-Workout formula to improve high intensity exercise performance, increase muscle strength and power, and enhance the effects of resistance training.

20 Secrets of Very Fit People

by Chalene Johnson

Looking to get into great shape? Here are 20 secrets that very fit people follow to get–and stay–in shape. Read these tips, then print them out and post them somewhere you see them every day so they’re a daily reminder! 
  1. Keep a water bottle with you at all times and drink from it often. Water should always be your drink of choice. To kick things up every once in a while, try adding lemon, lime, cucumber, or a few berries to liven up the flavor without adding significant calories. 
  2. Look at exercise as a pleasure and a privilege, not a burden or chore. Think positively about the changes regular exercise will produce. Rather than obsessing about your next meal, get excited about your next workout! 
  3. Eat well-balanced meals and remember that excess calories will turn into excess weight. No matter what the latest fad diet says, extra calories equal extra weight!  
  4. Limit caffeine and exposure to secondhand smoke. 
  5. Focus on short-term fitness goals with an emphasis on completing daily exercise. 
  6. Keep a daily log of what you’re actually eating. This includes every time you grab a handful of chips here or eat the crust of your kid’s sandwich there, and all of your snacking. 
  7. Enjoy an occasional (once a week) “unhealthy” treat, but never an unhealthy week or unhealthy vacation. 
  8. Enjoy contributing to the health of others by having a partner or friends to exercise with, as well as recruiting others who want to feel better and have more energy. Have a neighbor who’s sitting on the porch every morning when you walk by? Ask him or her to join you on your walk! 
  9. Avoid monotony by taking up new forms of exercising, or using things that keep you motivated and inspired, like new shoes or great music. 
  10. Subscribe to fitness magazines to keep focused on health as an overall way of life. Don’t want the extra paper cluttering up your house? Make sure to visit a healthy lifestyle blog every day (like this one!) or find some fitness folks to inspire you on Instagram! 
  11. Invest in the right tools including good shoes, and comfortable, quality workout clothes. 
  12. Make it your goal to do some form of exercise 6 days a week. If your workout program is just 5 days a week, get a walk in on the other days. Don’t compare your body to those of others. Instead, love yourself as you are and just work to reach your personal best. 
  13. If your diet is unbalanced, make an effort to fix that, but also consider taking a multivitamin. 15. Work to take your exercise to new levels of intensity. 
  14. Create an exercise schedule the day before instead of leaving it to chance or waiting to “find” the time. If the last three Presidents of the United States can make time to work out every day, you can make time too! 
  15. Move beyond the boundaries of weight loss and into total fitness. Measure success by the way your clothes fit, your energy level, or your reduction in pain or stiffness, not the number on a scale. 
  16. Stick with eating plans you can maintain indefinitely. Remember that no matter how hard you’re working out, if you’re consuming too many calories, you’ll never see the muscles that lie beneath layers of fatty tissue. 
  17. Get adequate amounts of sleep so your muscles can recover. An added bonus of exercise: most people who exercise regularly fall asleep faster and sleep more soundly! 
  18. Limit alcohol intake to special occasions.
